    i may buy it coz i like table tennis and feedback on the gamespot forums is positive

    getting online is the linchpin though as apparantly single player is very short, and dull

    well i traded in perfect dark zero and paid $30.00 for this table tennis

    the best thing i ever done

    this game is sheer fun

    it playes like table tennis
    it sounds like table tennis
    its fast
    its furious
    and its not glitchy/twitchy

    i havent played Top Spin 2 yet - but this is better than top spin1 for gameplay value.

    its not a very deep game in terms on longevity
    but it is another great ****-up, grab all ya mates for a bash, type game
    this game online would be flawless, in which is where the developers have aimed at coz there just aint that much single player wise

    well worth the $60.00 RRP.............

    Rockstar are the GREATEST development team in all gaming world, all gaming history

    First we have GTA
    Then we get THE WARRIORS

    Bloody great isn't it? They didn't have to make Table Tennis. They could have blown it off to choose a safe game to make. But no, they took the challenge. Rockstar are fricking cool.

    Is singleplayer still fun?

    yeah it is man and its intense but there ZERO depth

    there a few tournies about 4 of them.........the All Star tourny is very very hard, and i have just won it, but with a ivanisevic of ping pong...he hits very hard

    it will be near impossible to win that with any other charachter

    but there's nothing else single player

    its a multiplayer gem of a game - and i heard its flawless online with zero lag no matter whom u play - even overseas

    i got a pc the other day, and my mate is coming around to hook it up with broadband -

    if all goes well, you will see my name @ #1 on the ping pong charts in the coming weeks :lol: :p :bleh!:

    My mum has a ping pong table and we used to play alot. wed hav family ping pong tourny, and mum loved it! Since then she got a stuffed shoulder and cant play, so i thought maybe this game would be good to get to resserect the family game. As long as it has a challenging SP mode, thats still fun if not deep. I dont hav online, but plenty of competitive family members, what do ya reckon?

    So, do you think anyone can pick up the control easy?
     
  18. ak47

    ak47 Guest

    yes and no

    u can pick and play easy

    but there is a great deal of depth learnt within the controls once u start to master it

    do a trade for it or rent it first - its worth the trade in value, coz then u pay max $40.00 for it

    if 2 people with zero experience played this game together for the 1st time - they wouldnt put it down until there was clear cut winner

    that happened to me - i got the game and told my mates and 2 of them came over, and i had only just started the training

    we got to the business and started playing - 3 hrs later, nobody could decide who was the real champ it was soo close - we walked off for a beer, with very sore thumbs.

    I bought table tennis & I wasn't thinking it was gonna be much good. I saw alot of reviews and thought the only way it got a good review because it was made by Rockstar. Played first match against my bro, both wasn't impressed much.
    Then after we had a few more games & started some rallies (sp?) going & the brilliance of the game shone through.

    I was playing the game as you do when you play tennis, holding down the shot button & aiming.....Doesn't work with table tennis. You got to press you counter shot before you opponent strikes the ball, then position your shot as you are hitting it. Its bizarre coz once you get into the gameplay, It doesn't actually feel like you are playing the game.

    How does it not feel like your playng the game?

    dunno what that means - its great

    10hrs racked up now - u keep coming back coz the unlockables are actually achievable on a great challenge scale - not easy - bloody hard.

    Its out everywhere - even sold out alot of joints - go rent or try at the shops....the line @ my local JBHIFI to play Table Tennis was 6 GROWN UPS LONG, kids forbidden :lol:
